The staff at Boring Diatribe are giving you a pass. Remember when they invaded Iraq, and you thought of the money you paid to the federal government in taxes, and you wondered how many of your dollars went into blowing to bits some sweet Iraqi kid? We remember. After watching 3000 people get murdered on television, the last thing on our minds was more bloodshed, but that's us, and while we wrote, and marched, and told the whole world, 20,000,000 of us, that this war was wrong, the ignorant bastards in this country followed their demagogue and dragged us into this filthy quagmire of torture and the slaughter of innocents.

Okay, you did your best. You spoke to your friends, you contributed to the DNC, you contributed to the campaigns, you wrote, you marched, you made your voice heard. You are no longer responsible for what follows.

The red states don't give a damn about you, your views, or the fact that if you live in a blue state, you most likely subsidize their liberal-hating, gay-bashing lives with some of those same tax dollars you worried about in Iraq. By re-electing George Bush, they have put a gun to your forehead, and are no longer taxing you. They're looting you. So, let's join them.

Especially if you live in a blue state, we want you to contact your federal representatives, and tell them they'd damned well better not fillibuster the next tax cut. Let the idiots take the field, and design the economy around their faith. I'm sure Jesus will bail them out once the blue state gravy train stops pumping money into their lagging economies.

The more we read of the commentary on the right, the more we understand that this is what they think of you, and of us:
If anyone needs to work to “bring the country together” it’s those on the left who have divided it so badly. Those who sought to destroy this great man should get down upon their knees and beg the victors for mercy. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll let a few of them linger on for the simple reason that they amuse us. My life’s goal is to see the Democratic Party virtually obliterated and left as a rump of people like Stephanie Herseth who both mostly agree with us anyways and are easy on the eyes.

That’s the future of the Democratic Party: providing Republicans with a number of cute (but not that bright) comfort women.

Let’s face a hard truth: this was the bitterest Presidential campaign in living memory. The Democrats and their allies staked everything on the defeat of this President. All of the resources they had accumulated over a generation of struggle were thrown into this battle: and they have failed. Despite all of their tricks, despite all of their lies, the people have rejected them. They mean nothing. They are worth nothing. There’s no point in trying to reach out to them because they won’t be reached out to. We’ve got their teeth clutching the sidewalk and out boot above their head. Now’s the time to curb-stomp the bastards.
Okay? Do you get it now? We did. We read this tract of filth and lies and we understood: these people do not want peace, or unification, or even to govern. They want to rule, with a boot on your neck, laughing at you while they empty your pockets. So, let's give them what they want.

They want a small, drownable federal government? Help them. Let's shrink the federal pie and expand our state programs. When the red states complain that grandma can't afford her drugs or that Johnny got his arm blown off in Iraq and there's no money 'cause he can't work no more, well, tell them to talk to their impoverished state governments, or their church, or Jesus, because the liberal train just left the station, with its cargo of the 40-hour workweek, clean air and water, and a government responsive to the citizenry. It's gone, folks, and you sent it on its way. Maybe you can hitch a ride in the trunk of a passing plutocrat, if he doesn't throw you under his wheels for traction.

Here at Boring Diatribe, we're inexpressibly weary of subsidizing people who call us liars, traitors, and evil. Enough. Stop resisting. Help them. Let them understand with their bodies and their lives the full monstrous shape of what they desire. We're dividing the country? Let's. Let's divide the country. Let's pit Jesusland against Reasonland, and see who comes out on top. Stop enabling the red states. They don't care about you. They say it every day. They laugh at you while you're trying to help them. To recall an earlier post, imagine the victims of 9/11 pissing on the firefighters dispatched to save them. That's what these people are doing to you.

Put out your local fires. Stop enabling the arsonists.

'cute (but not that bright) comfort women'. Great! - where do I sign up? Oh, wait - I don't fall in the 'not that bright' category, guess I'm out of the running...

That's absolutely outrageous - thing is we're not 'comfort women", nor ever will be, because generally, Democratic women (aka feminists or "feminazis") don't WANT to be with partners who think they are the only voice in the relationship, or the world for that matter.

I could barely read the rest of that guy's post. I know we're supposed to get a view from the other side, but it's so gross.
